Packed with powerful imaging technologies by Sony, Handycam® captures uncompromised Full HD video and detail-packed stills that other camcorders or smartphones just cannot match. The new line-up stands out with features such as Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ for super-stable images, as well as uprated projectors, simple wireless sharing and remote control that can be accessed from your smartphone.
The new HDR-PJ820E features an Exmor R CMOS sensor, a BIONZ X image processor and a G Lens with 26.8mm wide angle.
Several new features are enabled by the high-speed processing abilities of the evolved BIONZ X™ engine. The zoom ratio of latest models is dramatically improved. By Pixel Super Resolution technology now embellishes detailing on video footage captured at up to 24x magnification with Clear Image Zoom – a first for Handycam®. And with all that processing power on tap, Handycam® can now record movies in top-quality AVCHD Full HD, simultaneously with MP4 for easy smartphone transfers and web uploads with the camcorders’ built-in NFC/Wi-Fi function.
The in-built projector on the PJ820 casts big beam, bright images onto any handy wall or white surface and, with a newly developed light output of 50 lumens, this Handycam projects clear pictures up to 200 inches wide.
Electronic keystone correction on the HDR-PJ820E squares up skewed angles if the projector isn’t pointing straight. And for extra flexibility, the projector accepts external inputs as well. The high-resolution Exmor R CMOS image sensor inside all new Handycam models allows users to create detailed Full HD video and still photos, while the high-precision Xtra Fine LCD on the HDR-PJ820E features WhiteMagic display technology that uses additional white pixels to boost display brightness.
Pictures are complemented by superb Handycam sound with features such as ‘My Voice Cancelling’ that suppresses vocal frequencies from immediately behind the camera, without affecting volume of the subject’s voice and other foreground sounds.
New to Handycam®, Wi-Fi and NFC allows wireless transfers of movie clips and photos from Handycam® to your smartphone or tablet at a single touch. Simply touching Handycam® via NFC with your mobile device also activates Smart Remote Control. Start and stop recording with your mobile via Wi-Fi – it’s ideal for group scenes or solo performances when you don’t want to run from the camcorder back into the scene once recording has begun. Wi-Fi also allows wireless transfers of movies and stills for playback on your TV. Setup is easy – just download the free PlayMemories Mobile™ app for your iOS or Android device.
The Handycam HDR-PJ820E is currently available at Jumbo showrooms and select electronics’ retail stores across the UAE. Also available in the Handycam PJ series are the PJ540, PJ340 and PJ270.
